#FactFriday: There are more than 215,000 unfilled IT support jobs in the U.S.


• ExcelinEd


Did you know that demand for computer support specialists is projected to grow 11% from 2016–2026, which is faster than the average for all occupations? But only 45% of American high schools teach computer science?

In honor of National IT Professionals Day earlier this week, ExcelinEd is highlighting the increased demand for information technology and computer science, as well as what businesses, education leaders and policymakers can do to prepare students for this growing field.

ExcelinEd and Code.org’s IT + CS Business Advisory Council recently released Addressing America’s Growing Demand for IT and CS: The Case for Change in K–12 Education, which identifies what businesses, education leaders and policymakers can do to address our nation’s information technology and computer science skills gap. It is time more students have the learning opportunities families want and our nation’s employers need.
